The casting for Avenue Q has now been announced with a host of fresh young talent supporting the puppet stars of the Tony Award winning musical.
Reprising her role from the South Korean tour, Ellena Vincent will be playing Gary Coleman, a female role on Broadway but a male role in the West End. Returning to Sell a Door after The Man Who Had All The Luck, Richard Morse will be playing Brian, and Jessica Parker will be returning after her recent role in Seussical as Mrs T/Bad Idea Bear. The roles of the hopeful young graduate Princeton and closet gay Republican Rod will be taken by Tom Steedon (Musical Starnights European Tour) and Kate Monster/Lucy the Slut will be played by Lucie-Mae Sumner (Sister Mary Roberts in Sister Act, UK Tour).
The cast also features Stephen Arden as Nicky/Trekkie Monster and Jacqueline Tate as Christmas Eve along with Greg Airey, Emily-Jane Morris, Will Hawksworth and Wreh-asha Walton.
